Okay got some new GM strut mounts from CED picked up today. So now I have the complete parts to review.
2004 original redline rubber in hat is smaller.
2012 OEM strut mount is made in china , comes with the original bearing style and a mechanical locking nut instead of nyloc.
2011 OEM replacement (Dorman) strut mount looks same as 2012, but made in Taiwan.
2004 and 2012 cobalt and Ion spring hats (different diameters) OEM made in Canada
2012 OEM replacement ( wont say lol) hat made in Taiwan
etc. I will email you pictures cant get to it before tomorrow afternoon.
ALSO. my Pedders, on car for a couple season never seen any winter or salt, corroded and paint chipped ( took photos) did not go for warranty as.... meh
but I did media blast and re powdercoat. Looks like they are going straight to pc without media blast based on what I could see.
AND my quest to review these springs show clearly that any aftermarket spring so far is inferior to OEM springs, but OEM springs can break. I got piktars of that.
Pedders are the best after OEM.
that may change lol
